Bucket List

Do you have a list of dreams, goals for life? They could be career goals, personal goals, or fun things you dream of doing. What do you want to do before you die? Here is my list, so far.


  • Get a job that uses my education, even if it is not my primary job. For an explanation of this read here.


  • Iona, for at least a week
  • Spend another week visiting other islands in the Hebrides
  • Dublin, Ireland to see the Book of Kells which was probably written on Iona
